    This does not work very well for me. It has some major issues.

    In order to set the sidebar for the pages/posts, you have to go to appearance > Astra options > sidebars. Then filter through four sets of options to get the sidebar where you want. For most people, this is not intuitive. It’s time-consuming and very confusing.

    Ideally, you should just go to the page you want to edit and select the sidebar you want on the page.

    Astra already has a settings area on the page where you can choose the location of the sidebar (left, right, none). It would make sense to then have some checkboxes below this to choose which sidebar you want to display on the page, instead of having to do it at appearance > Astra options > sidebars.

    But I understood some people like having control over all their sidebars in one place. For them, this plugin may be helpful, but it does not have filters to set the sidebar according to a specific category.

    The current process to set a custom sidebar is very confusing and time-consuming if you have a lot of pages/posts where you want to have different sidebars.

    I would like to request the Brainstorm Force team to add an option in the Gutenberg editor section from where we can select the sidebar we want for specific pages/posts.

    In this way, the plugin will be helpful for both types of people who want to have a master control to set sidebar at once and for the people, who want to set sidebar according to their pages/posts from the editor section itself.
